Maxwell's material was my genesis into all the areas of conspiracy, alternative history, the occult/esoterica, etc, and his material is worthwhile
for those just entering into these subjects but I feel that there is something not quite right there. There seems to be a dialectic presented whereby
Maxwell debunks the Christian religion and the Christian fundamentalists debunk Maxwell. I'd rather avoid the entire circus.
The best thing he does is to point the way to certain subject areas, and the books he sells on his site like Busenbark's 'Symbols, Sex, and the
Stars', Hewitt-Brown's 'Stellar Theology & Masonic Astronomy', amongst others are good. But you might as well go to Manly P. Hall for the backbone
of what Maxwell communicates.
The meagre book list he has on site is worthwhile too though. And there is some very interesting information there too.
So in total, my mind is not fully made up on the guy right now. His astro-theology 'the only worship out there is the worship of the sun' has made
people I've communicated with religious converts to this premise in itself. They spout it like dogma.
And the potential, speculative new age, theosophist links he seems to have should be held in mind IMO.
But get what information you can out of such people as Maxwell, pay them for their material, and go beyond. There's a whole world of knowledge out
there to dip into. These people are the first step to be your own 'freethinker' and researcher. Then everyone should be doing it for themselves.
